If your crawlspace is bare dirt, then you need a plastic vapor barrier installed to reduce the excess moisture from traveling into your home through the subfloor. A vapor barrier consists of sturdy sheets of black crawlspace Visqueen plastic spread out to cover the entire floor under your home and up the walls a few feet. The proper plastic thickness for durability is at least 6mil. These sheets provide crawl space encapsulation to block moisture from getting into your home through the subfloor.
In the Puget Sound area, it's vital to keep moisture out of your walls, floors, and ceilings during our cold winters. That's what a vapor retarder does.
That’s simple; you find a local licensed contractor like Envirosmart Solution that provides the services you need and has excellent reviews.
Reinforced polyethylene plastic sheeting (poly) of at least 6 mil thickness is the material most commonly used as a vapor barrier. While thinner plastic or regrind may be OK for short-term use, only reinforced virgin poly should be used for long-term applications like crawlspace vapor barriers.
Without a vapor barrier, the moisture that comes in through the soil can lead to electrical shorts, which is a fire hazard. That water can also cause your plumbing to rust and eventually break over time.
Installing a vapor barrier in your crawl space will keep the area dry and healthy.

When is it time to replace my vapor barrier?
There are two reasons you might want to consider replacing your vapor barrier instead of simply repairing it. Either it is damaged beyond repair, and a replacement will save you time and money, or you realize that repairing a cheap vapor barrier is ineffective, and you want a more secure moisture protection system.
A professional home inspection will offer you an answer if you need better protection for controlling moisture and securing your property for years to come.
When a vapor barrier is installed by a professional, it should last for years. But they don't last forever and do need replacement. If you're experiencing any of these problems, you should have your crawlspace checked to see if your vapor barrier needs repairs or replacement.
Damaged vapor barrier repair – sometimes harm comes from pests, rodents, and contractors or repairmen who had to crawl under your home. If we can repair it, we’ll let you know. But sometimes, what’s there is just too old and deteriorated.
Vapor barriers come in clear, white, and black plastic. But in damp Puget Sound, black is more effective at stopping moisture evaporation, compared with the white or transparent Visqueen. Clear plastic can sweat.
Dark colors are more efficient at preventing moisture evaporation, and they halt the growth of plants that might dwell beneath a home’s crawlspace. Plants and mold naturally emit moisture into the air, and that creates added dampness and condensation.
Black plastic sheeting creates a healthy and clean crawlspace. That, along with proper ventilation, is the key.
Envirosmart Solution always uses the industry’s highest-quality Visqueen sheeting products in all of our crawlspace vapor barrier installations or repairs. So, you can be confident your crawl space will be in good repair for years to come.
